The files or the files inside the folders (or sub folders), will also be excluded from uploading to Universal AV.

Remove folders or files to be excluded

Follow these instructions to have certain folders or files specified under the list of exclusions to be included back (undo ignore permanent file permanently) to scanning by the AV (Offline AV and Universal AVs) and uploading the file(s) to Universal AV:

  1. Under the exclusion list, click on the box to the left to mark (with a check mark) the folder or file(s) to be removed and click on Remove button. The selected folder or file(s) will be removed from the exclusions list and will be included for scanning.

File exclusion during real-time scanning

SecureAPlus will prompt you when there is a threat detected. When you are sure that it is not a threat, click on Ignore Permanently. This will put the file into the list of exclusions which will be excluded from real-time scanning. You will not be prompted for further action on the file anymore.

If you have reason to believe that this file is no longer safe, you have to manually remove it from the list of exclusions for it to be included in the scan and be prompted if a threat is detected.
